WILLIAMSBURG, Va. - Authorities say they've recovered the body of a teenager who went missing in a tributary of the James River.

James City County police Maj. Steve Rubino tells WAVY-TV ( that crews pulled the body of 18-year-old Trevor Times from College Creek on Tuesday morning.

Officials say Times was swimming with a group to a sandbar on College Creek when he went under the surface on Monday afternoon.

Earlier Tuesday, officers walked along the shoreline of the creek in what the department called a recovery operation. Times was a senior at Jamestown High School.

Rubino says signs advise against swimming or wading in College Creek due to a strong rip tide.
